Tutorial: Pride Flag Inspired Look

IMG_5464

I know pride month has just ended, but I felt like I couldn’t pass the opportunity to do something fun with it. Of course I could tell you that I posted this late about it because everyday should be pride month, because it’s important to keep celebrating the things the LGBTQ+ community has accomplished and to keep fighting for equality, even outside of pride month. But, however much that is true, I was just very late with actually doing something, lol. So here’s my, tiny bit later than planned, pride inspired makeup tutorial. Let’s get into it!

I started off with my usual base. I did my eyebrows and I applied eyeshadow primer. Then I blended a neutral light brown/nude shade in the crease, to make it a bit deeper. I used the colour Code James from the James Charles palette for this.

Then the intense part starts. I started this step by packing the different colours on my eye in the right order. After tightly packing the colours on, I started blending them all together. It took quite a while to get all the colours perfectly saturated and blended. Just keep packing the colours on with a small, stiff brush. I did this in the shape of a full cut crease with wing. The colours I used are you’re kidding (red), social blade (green), playground (blue) ,and love that (purple) from the James Charles x Morphe palette, and go for it (yellow) and all in (orange) from the Jessie Paege x Tarte palette. Just keep going back in with the colours until you feel that everything is blended well enough.

The next step was to outline our cut crease with black eyeliner. Excuse the terrible eyeliner job, I was running out and using the last crumbling bits of my eyeliner. I just drew a thin wing all the way to the end of our cut crease wing. From there I went along the crease line until I was about halfway across my eye. I made the tip of the wing a bit thicker, so it would look a bit smoother. I then blended a black eyeshadow from the eyeliner inwards, for which I used spooky from the James Charles palette. I only did this in the wing part.

Then I applied concealer and powder under my eye, so I could do my lower lash line. I applied ambitious from the Jessie Paege palette under my eye and blended it out. I wanted to add a bit extra, so I applied a glitter lipgloss to my inner corner working inwords, stopping at approximately the yellow colour, and to my lower lash line. For this I used the Meeki Space Dive holographic lipgloss in colour 377 Cosmic Ray. To finish it off I applied mascara and the rest of my usual face makeup.

And this is the final look! I wanted to show this fun, little tutorial to kind of show my support for the LGBTQ+ community. I believe that everyone is equal and everyone deserves the same rights and respect, and the community needs allies to achieve this. So if you’re able to support the LGBTQ+ community in any way, please do so.

I also found it very fun to play with all the rainbow colours, which is of course something I could do all year around. I just found the occasion of pride month very fitting and I wanted to give a bit of attention to the community on my blog as well. I hope you enjoyed this article and I hope you all had a lovely pride. Don’t forget to be yourself whenever you can!
